Meet Lori Askew
 Gluten Free Consultants was developed by Lori Askew, a retail management and marketing consultant who is personally dealing with celiac disease. Dining out to someone with gluten intolerance is worrisome and often leads to days of sickness.

 Celiac Related to Colic in Infants -
January 2011

After surveying more than 500 people with Celiac Disease or severe gluten intolerance it was found that there is a strong correlation between the two. In the general population 20% of people had colic as an infant, for which there is not specific known cause. This study found that of individuals with Celiac or GI 39% had colic as infants. This is almost twice the occurrence rate.

The hope is that the medical community will begin giving the gene test to infants with colic to rule out Celiac or to determine the need to eliminate gluten intake whether through breast milk or formula. This one step alone could lead to much earlier diagnosis and shorten the time Celiacs go untreated and in pain.
